A good night’s rest is important to your overall health, so it’s crucial you pick the right mattress to lull you to sleep. We’ve tested dozens of mattresses, and the good news is many of them are on sale right now for Cyber Monday. There’s a mattress here for everyone.

But first, there are a few choices to make. Should you get a hybrid or an all-foam mattress? We prefer hybrids as they combine multiple layers of memory foam with hundreds of individually wrapped springs sandwiched in between. In our testing experience, they tend to be more supportive and help cool you down a bit better so you don’t wake up sweaty. All-foam is pretty much as the name suggests—layers and layers of thick memory foam.

All prices below are for queen-sized mattresses. These picks were tested by our Gear team and featured in our Best Mattresses guide.

Even after testing more mattresses this year, the Helix Midnight Luxe is still our favorite. It’s plush and comfortable, and designed to prevent back pain—the springs are firmer in areas that need more support. Unfortunately, it’s also super expensive and has gone up in price since last Cyber Week, but if you can afford it, we think you’ll really love it. 

Organic Mattress Deals

WIRED senior reviewer Scott Gilbertson said this is the only mattress he and his wife agree on, despite her liking soft mattresses and him liking firm ones. It somehow combines them both and has held up over the past year. There’s also a pillow top option for those who need a super soft mattress. 

It’s not just comfortable. This is our favorite eco-friendly mattress, made from organic latex, wool, and cotton. There’s no polyurethane, fire retardants, memory foam, or chemical adhesives. The company is also a certified B Corporation that’s purchasing enough offsets to be able to say it operates as a carbon-negative business.

If you’d like an organic mattress for your child, you can save some money by going with this brand instead of Avocado—like the Avocado, it’s made with organic latex, wool, and cotton. Reviewer Scott Gilbertson tried this one for his kids, and he said it’s firm but comfortable—his kids said it’s the most comfortable mattress they’ve ever tried. For $125 more, you can choose the double-sided option to extend the life of the mattress if your kids are rough on beds (i.e., they’re constantly jumping on them).

Birch mattress

This is another organic option and it comes from Helix, the maker of our favorite bed. It has a plush and bouncy feel but isn’t squishy. It’s also good for stomach, side, and even back sleeping, but it doesn’t stay as cool as some other options on this list.

Comes with 2 pillows, a sheet set, and a mattress protector

WIRED writer Louryn Strampe tested both the Birch and this organic Awara mattress. She found this one to be springy and comfortable especially for solo sleepers, but says it didn’t offer as much support as the Birch. The company plants 10 trees (through trees.org) for every mattress purchased.

This is one of our honorable mentions. Its thick pillow top is almost as nice as our favorite mattress, the Helix Midnight Luxe.

You don’t have to spend thousands to get a good mattress. We’ve tried a few mattresses from Allswell (a brand owned by Walmart), and like them all. If you’re sleeping on this mattress every night, go with the Luxe option. It’s comfier than the standard Allswell with its three extra layers of foam and a plusher top. Like a lot of the mattresses in this guide, the standard prices have gone up over the last year.

The Allswell Supreme is an even better mattress that’s discounted to $739 ($246 off), and it’s as nice as many $2,000 mattresses. The foam is firmer, and there are layers of copper- and graphite-infused gel foam to further help disperse heat. If you need to spend as little as possible, the Standard Hybrid is on sale for $281 ($94 off), and it’s supportive, with medium firmness. We think it’s the best dirt-cheap mattress, but better for a guest room than your daily bed.

Comes with 2 pillows

The Leesa Hybrid is one of lead mattress reviewer Jeffrey Van Camp’s favorites. It has a silky, textured cover and it’s soft yet firm and pressure-relieving. He said the layers of foam and springs blend together nicely, hugging his body to sleep. Like the Helix, it’s also pricey.

Choose Hybrid Foam + Springs

Casper is probably the most popular of all the bed-in-a-box mattress brands. We prefer this hybrid over the all-foam, which pops up first on the website, so make sure you’re purchasing the right one.  It’s the bed WIRED reviews director Jeffrey Van Camp switched back to in between testing other mattresses. He called it a palette cleanser and says it feels how a bed should. It’s supportive but soft, and typically works for stomach, back, and side sleepers. If you’ve read through our guide and are having trouble picking, this is a safe bet.

Foam Mattress Deals

Comes with 2 Pillows

You might not know if you need a soft or firm mattress. Layla’s mattress is double-sided, so you can spend a few nights on both (medium firm and medium soft) to figure it out. It’s all-foam, so it’s not as comfortable as hybrid mattresses, but we liked it even for stomach sleeping.

Comes with 2 pillows, a sheet set, and a mattress protector

We think this one is great for side-sleepers. Its four layers of dense, conforming foam gently hug you while you snooze, but you don’t sink in too much. It offers a “Forever Warranty.”
